I took this photo just today. This model is not up on the site. It is a custom order for one of our best customers. This will be a permanent, in-stock item starting around the end of February. PM or email me if interested. These are sweet.

A lot of redesigned models are not yet up on the site. We're a tiny company with too many holes to plug in the dam. However, as of Feb 15, all new shipments, no matter the model, will come with the Shamrock design, EXCEPT the models with grip holes.

The black line will be something extra special, as these models will appear with the Shamrock in lime green. This will eventually migrate to other models.

I just realized one of the unspoken benefits of the new design. By carrying one around with you, you always have a lucky clover in your pocket. Gotta be worth something.

Hey, I never thought of that. Maybe I should include a rabbit's foot with every shipment.



BTW, interesting genesis of the name....

In late 2013, I came down with a serious illness. It was touch and go for about 90 days. At some point after I recovered I told my wife, "I have a charmed life." When I joined AGF a few months later, in June 2014, and was searching for a screen name, I chose "Charmed Life." In early 2016, when CLP became a thing, that seemed the logical choice for the name of the company.



Another odd coincidence. Around that same time (our website went live on July 1, 2016), I was thinking about using a four-leafed clover as our company logo. I typed into Google pictures of four-leafed clovers. Hundreds came up. As I scrolled down, one popped up with the four petals shaped like Fender 351 guitar picks. I'll tell you, as obvious as it is now, I could have spent thousand years and never thought of that. This is what we call stupid.

I hired a Photoshop person to rework the image some, then it became ours.

Life is Strange.

Thanks for your post,
Scott

Our new black models look so cool with the green Shamrock.







But let's not leave out our new brown series polyimide 1.50 mm triangle.

Brand new model. Genuine DuPont Polyimide Thermoset Polymer. None come better, folks. Play it against everything you own.



Direct link to this model on our site: https://www.charmedlifepicks.com/pro...-polyimide-tri

Remember when comparing our company with others that we always provide FREE SHIPPING on every order, so please factor that it when comparing with other vendors.

Here's a beautiful black aerospace triangle with the same Shamrock design, .75 mm, not even up on our site yet.

Just took this photo yesterday. After all the experimentation, it appears natural sunlight gives us the best photos. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by that.



This is a black aerospace polymer, similar in function to our brown polyimide but from a different molecular class. These are from a class of plastics categorized as "engineering polymers. They actually replace metals in aircraft and other industries.

Players love this material, and the tonal properties are different enough that the two materials complement one another rather than conflict. We've pioneered this material for more than five years now because, as players, we believed it and knew how good it was. It now sells straight-up one-for-one versus the Vespel line. Adam Chowning from Carter Vintage Guitars -- one of the biggest Vespel pick dealers in the industry -- recently stated the following in an Instagram post: "The pick is a @charmedlifepicks . It is the black material they have and it is my favorite pick that I’ve ever played." We sell and love Vespel too -- and casein too -- but this black stuff is something special.

One more snap. Thanks for looking.

It took us forever to get this right, but we're thrilled we persisted. Pretty cool, huh? Thanks for looking.
